Chris Aiken teaching at MELT

Chris will be teaching in WEEK TWO of Winter Melt in New York City

January 9 – 13

10am-12pm $115An Eco-poetic Approach to Dance Improvisation and PerformanceIn this movement workshop we will explore awareness and intention through the development of perceptual acuity in relationship to our inner and outer landscapes. We will examine the delicate relationships between our poetic imagination and our sensory systems. The basis of my approach is that composition and performance are ecologically rooted acts. Our imagination grows from where and how we exist. Movement, story, image and gesture are imbedded in the relationships that are evolving all around us.  Come ready to dance, perceive, perform and imagine.
